Geez! I had more liquid discharge than normal and now cramps and it feels like it could be labor but I just got over the flu and I still have a cold and I know that I am dehydrated. So I have been drinking water and I'm going to start drinking a lot. I just can't tell!!! I thought I was a pro about childbirth I thought I would know when I'm in labor because I did this before! But my throat is sore and I have a cough and asthma and a little trouble breathing! If so why now!? If she isn't head down and her cord is down below I'd need a c section and that would be scary being sick and trouble breathing! Darn. Well, I'll wait it out and see if it is dehydration from being sick. I went into labor with Alissa this same time, 38 weeks and 2 days. But with her I went to hospital 3 CM dilated and they gave me pitocin right away and I am not even sure my labor with her started on it's own KWIM?
I would drink a ton of water and lie down on my left side to see if it slows down. If it does then you're not in labor but if it gradually gets more intense then I would say you are. Good luck and please keep us posted!
